Disgruntled former Slotblog members occasionally post elsewhere online insisting that people are often and routinely banned from Slotblog and that is simply false.

 

Since Slotblog migrated to the IP.Board forum software on February 23, 2006, exactly 13 individuals have been banned from this public forum. 

 

Slotblog has, as of today, a total of 5,414 members, so that means a mere 0.24% of the membership has been banned from participation in over nine years.

 

Not a single member was banned without cause or in spite; all earned their bannings due to their own actions and activities over time by refusing to conform to Slotblog’s Terms of Use and/or by “not playing well with others.” And all were given multiple warnings that their behavior on the blog was unacceptable before their accounts were terminated; in several cases, members were given “time-outs” more than once before ultimately being banned.

 

Nuff said…

These disgruntled bloggers are no longer Slotblog members. They are now "Members of the Banned".

 

They are the reason I no longer visit any Old or Weird blog sites. Too many resident trolls.

 

And the troll like behavior is not confined to the "Banned" members. Moderators have also lowered themselves to this level.

 

In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtrl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

The slot sites are soooo tidy - just look at PC hardware or gaming forums; every day new trolls.

Greg,

 

You are doing a great job here as the administrator of Slotblog.

 

And I want to say that I deserved my "time-out' that I got. I rightfully earned it!

That you would post to reveal you received a time-out and to indicate that you didn't take it personally says volumes about your character and integrity.

As a side note. When I joined Slotblog in May of 2007, which I found by accident when Googling... "Wonder if there any commercial tracks left?... there were slightly less than 1,000 members. Now there are more than 5400. 

 

I think that says a lot about the hobby and the people on the 'blog.

The way I see it, you have to be a pretty major dummy to get banned from this place. Actually, you have to be a "serial major dummy", because Greg doesn't exactly have a hair trigger.  

If you like to flop on the couch in your work clothes, eating chips and getting crumbs all over it at home, well... that's OK. You don't do that in someone else's house if you expect to be invited back again.

I don't feel making fun of banned members is a good idea.

 

There is no faulting Nesta's devotion to the hobby and his skills were very much above the median line.

JW,

 

Bringing religion, or things like color, orientation, mental health, social status or hair style might push a move over to Freeblog.  

 

You like Nesta, so do did I, he likes slot cars... lots in common there. Think of the slot car world if Nesta never found us.

He's off the hook, so what. Right?

 

Anyone,

Did anyone say to him "Nesta... dude ... like really man... kickback take... a hit...  I understand why you are bitter with Slotblog but call calling it deadblog is hurtful, guys are kickin' it over there left and friggin' right" ... "Chill a bit my slot car friend ... while we're here". 

 

Some artists play better than they can sing.

When I talk to Nesta on the phone, Bob, and he insults ANYONE on Slotblog or calls this forum "Dead____". I remind him of my rules: No insults to anyone on the phone or in the forum!

This hobby is too small for such petty arguments.

I cannot help what he or Vitter or Redbackspyder post on their Facebook pages.

But here on this forum, I do not want us to reduce ourselves to insulting them under the cover of this section of the forum that we think is secure from their eyes.
Else, I would wish Cheater to remove my moderating privileges so I can't see it.

Okay?

Mike, I believe Jarius has in mind a certain YouTube video posted here that has now been deleted.

 

I had a relative visting this weekend and we've been touring Civil War related sites for two days. I didn't listen to the full "Where's Nesta" video that's now been deleted by a moderator due to inappropriate language toward the end. Thanks to the mods and members for having my back.

 

Jairus, I don't think you've heard me badmouth Nesta very much, though I am guilty for picking on him for the Deadlog moniker. (if it were true, it'd probably sting a little; but it isn't...). In person, I like Nesta a lot.

 

And, Jairus, Board Tutorials & Info is an open forum, viewable by everyone, not just mods.

My general take on the subject is that if more positive content was available on OWH (I try to go there daily.).OWH members wouldn't take the time to p*ss and moan about what goes on here.

 

In the same tendency, I realize there are some people who have to complain, no matter how good they got things. I've worked with people like this, but those people I will just ignore. :to_become_senile:

Well said, Bill.

The last guy to get banned here insisted that controversy was good for Slotblog and technical articles were, to quote him, "BORING".

For what is worth - I come her for the technical posts as well as the news.

 

I had thought "Deadblog" was a reference to the posts for people who have passed away. It's a sad phase of life - first the marriages, then the kids, then the kid's marriages, and now the funerals many times of people "we just haven't gotten to see again, but meant to".

I don't feel making fun of banned members is a good idea.
 
There is no faulting Nesta's devotion to the hobby and his skills were very much above the median line.

 

I like Nesta's Barber Shop and Pit Space forum on OWH. He brings thoughtful insights into our little hobby. I don't visit there anymore due to the snippy negative responses from resident trolls and moderators alike. I'll miss Nesta.

Nesta is really friggin' harmless... no?  Why do you guys hang a 'kick me sign' on his back?

 

He's famous enough to have own 'where's Nesta' YouTube but doesn't have the 'clout' to tear down the hobby with a slot.

 

I don't see or read all the 'stuff' outside of Slotblog you guys are referencing. I read Nesta's 'stuff' on here, that's my point of reference.

Maybe I'll go over to OWH and see 'what's all the buzz'. Facebook, no... not moderated, could get ugly... sounds like it already is.

Bob,

 

I don't know who in your mind is "hanging a kick me sign" on Nesta's back here on Slotblog. I would have edited any such things out. I deleted a (humorous) video in this thread that had profanity (a violation of Slotblog policy) but it wasn't derogatory towards Nesta in any way.

 

This is the end of talking about Nesta in this thread. If you want to continue with it, start a new thread in the proper forum and blog away.

I've already deleted one post here.

Pablo, I'm out of my mind... who in your mind do you (as the admin) want to talk about in this thread?

I've been told by The Administration that there are like 50 guys on here that want me banned from here for life.
No... I won't repost those PMs... yet.
 
Funny thing is I can't remember them 50 sending me a PM, an email, a phone call, or showed up at my door to tell me to STFU.
 
That 'right there' tells me a lot.

If you can't talk about Nesta in a thread titled "Banning Slotblog members", where do you? :)
